— Ace And a lot of other US ports, too. The picture there features a Saudi ship cruising out of the docks, with the WTC hauntingly in background.
Jim Gerghty notes there is an awful lot of foreign management of US ports, too. He says Democrats' stand against the UAE deal is due to protectionism or xenophobia or both.

They've taken this issue, spun it around, and run with it all the way to the end zone. Score one for the left.

One man's xenophobia is another man's survival skill - my fear is that in attempting desperately to avoid even the slightest hint of possibly sounding "racist", we've rationalized ourselves into a state of utter helplessness by clamping on the blinders when it comes to border security.
Our modern day "intelligentsia" can just about handle the idea of us using barbaric imperialistic tactics to fight terrorism as long as it's "somewhere over there", but when you start talking about applying that same tough approach to potential neighbors, many prefer to stick their head in the sand.
I say whatever it takes to get serious about border security - if raw xenophobia is the only thing that will do it, then so be it. I consider it to be using blind fear to overcome blind stupidity.

It's pure political grandstanding.

As for me, I will be both as xenophobic and xenophobophobophobic as I please, and without justification, because I think recent events speak for themselves, and because I despise all thoughtless assumptions of the value of moral reciprocity.

Mind you, I'm not objecting to the xenophobia, which is entirely justified in this case. I'm just disgusted by the Democrats tendency to do or say anything at all in order to score political points.
